HTC is packing a deca-core processor into a new smartphone

We’ve been saying for a while now that HTC is going to need something powerful and enticing if it wants to start turning its abysmal sales around, and the One A9 is definitely one of those things. Also known as the HTC Aero, the HTC One A9 recently popped up on Geekbench, and the benchmark tool showed that the smartphone comes with a ridiculous deca-core processor from MediaTek. Pair that with the 4GB of RAM, and it’s clear that power is something that the One A9 has in excess, but that doesn’t make it enticing. Ten cores doesn’t mean much because there’s almost no instance in which that power would actually be utilized, it’s little more than marketing fluff.

Rumors of a HTC superphone are nothing new, but the vast quantity of leaks point to a device, possibly named the One A9. It’s expected to come later this year packed with the highest specifications. The One A9 made an appearance on Geekbench earlier this week. The benchmarking tool revealed the MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor and 4GB of RAM, which have only been seen once before on the Acer Predator 6 gaming phone. The Helio X20 runs on an octa-core processor split into two quad-core segments: one running at 1.4GHz and the other at 2.0GHz. A dual-core processor runs alongside the octa-core, running at 2.5GHz for more intensive tasks. It is the largest processor in the industry right now, surpassing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 and Nvidia’s Tegra K1. Add 4GB of RAM onto that, and you have one of the most powerful smartphones on the market. The benchmarks didn’t give any other information. Past leaks showed a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution display, but that was for the HTC Aero/Hero, not the HTC One A9. That said, the Aero could have easily been a codename for the One A9.
